I recently started monitoring this list and find it an excellent source 
of useful information from friendly folks. I will probably be asking for 
assistance here as soon as I get my SUSE box converted to Kubuntu.

On the phone thing - please don't flame me for the suggestion... Vonage 
has been great for me. Not free and not open source and not perfect, but 
a good fit for my needs. Taxes and all brings it to about $30 a month, 
but it eliminates the need for a land line in most areas. Calls to the 
US, Canada, Europe, and other Vonage users are included. I have 
relatives in the Middle East and Asia who have Vonage phones. My phone 
bill was a few hundred a month and is now just $30.

I have no connection with Vonage and I don't want this to be interpreted 
as a promotion. I don't expect Vonage to be around forever, but for now 
I don't know of a more cost effective service for my particular needs. YMMV
